The Polestar learning method is interactive for a deeper learning experience. Walk away from this course skilled at assessing the whole person; physically, psychologically, emotionally and spiritually. Polestar is renowned for its knowledge-based approach that incorporates:

  • discussion forum

  • problem solving (utilizing case studies and deductive reasoning)
  • hands-on teaching (group and individuals)
  • interactive online course material and revision resources
  • assessment skills
  • principles of neuro-linguistics (modeling, sequencing and structuring information, and maintaining appropriate learning states)

To graduate, you need to demonstrate your competence as a Polestar Pilates Instructor. This is a fundamental part of the training where you complete 40 hours of observation, 100 hours of self-mastery and 100 hours of apprentice teaching. Polestar offers a number of support options to help you pass your practical teaching with confidence. It’s important to book regular private sessions (at least monthly) with a member of your education team. They will help keep you on track with your self-mastery and apprentice teaching. You can also get together with another student to share private tuition costs.  A list of Polestar Educators and Mentors is provided when you start your course.
